Event « EUROPE-INBO 2007 » International conference on the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive

The «EUROPE-INBO 2007» meeting itself will be organized simultaneously with the General Assembly of the Mediterranean Network of Basin Organizations (MENBO), which will also take place in ROME at the same dates.

A meeting of the new INBO World Liaison Bureau will be held at the same time, following the 7th World General Assembly 2007, which took place in Debrecen in Hungary.

The meeting will be organized around the main current topics on the Framework Directive implementation in the European River Basin Districts in 2007. As the meeting is taking place in Italy, special attention will be paid to the issues specific to water management in the Mediterranean region.

The work will be in line with the recommendations and decisions made by the Committee of the European Union Water Directors and by the Strategic Coordination Group led by the Commission.

The implementation of the Water Framework Directive is now in an active and operational phase, which directly involves the Basin Organizations or the « District Authorities » that are facing operational problems in its field implementation.

 The aim of INBO is to enable the Basin Organizations to regularly and informally meet in order to exchange their practical experiences.

The meeting is open to all INBO member organizations and observers, and also to the water administrations and organizations, interested in the implementation of the Framework Directive, of the member and candidate countries of the European Union and of all the other countries of the Balkans, Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia, and of the Mediterranean region, in particular.
